SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Tourism Department is looking for the state’s best breakfast burritos.

The department Monday opened nominations for limited spots on what it has dubbed the “New Mexico True Breakfast Burrito Byway.”

According to tourism officials, the breakfast burrito was developed by a Santa Fe restaurant. It has also become a staple of Albuquerque’s International Balloon Fiesta, where a hand-held breakfast is a necessity.

The “New Mexico True Breakfast Burrito Byway” will identify the best of the burritos across New Mexico, based on nominations made by the public over the next two weeks.

Nominations are open to New Mexico-based restaurants with a business license, in good standing with local and state Health Departments, and with a bricks-and-mortar location.

The burritos must be a regular on the menu and include egg, tortilla and New Mexico chile.
